Chapter 334 Emergency A-Grade Mission!
Chapter 334 Emergency A-Grade Mission!
Well... Of course, Little Loki did not leave any trace or dead bodies... It was because it always swallowed all of its targets as a whole.
Instructor Mei Lan squinted her eyes as she stared judgingly at Little Loki in Tang Li Xue's embrace.
Little Loki noticed Instructor Mei Lan's stare and stared back at her with its third eye, looking as if it was threatening her.
Their stare locked at each other for a few moments.
"Instructor Lan, I am already done with my cultivation breakthrough. What is our mission now? Where would we go this time?" Tang Li Xue innocently asked Instructor Mei Lan.
Tang Li Xue's question accidentally broke the tense atmosphere between Little Loki and Instructor Mei Lan.
Instructor Mei Lan coughed awkwardly and took out the bamboo tube that contained the information about their mission from her space pouch, then gave it to Tang Li Xue first.
Tang Li Xue took the bamboo tube from Instructor Mei Lan's grasp and tapped it onto her forehead.
The information about the emergency mission rushed into her mind in an instant.
Tang Li Xue thought that the previous B-Grade mission was already very troublesome to complete, but the difficulty of this emergency A-Grade mission even far surpassed the previous B-Grade mission.
However, Tang Li Xue did not really quite understand this A-Grade mission...
Their destination place this time was Tang Feng City.
Tang Feng City was the imperial city of the Feng Dynasty.
In terms of size, Tang Feng City was several tens of times bigger than Quanhai City.
In terms of splendor, if Tang Feng City was at the level of a luxurious palace, then Quanhai City was only at the level of the dilapidated hut.
The reason for this was because the Hong Empire was only an old wilted empire.
Hong Empire was already struck by so many internal and external conflicts that it almost collapsed by itself right now.
On the contrary to Hong Empire, Feng Empire was the biggest and the strongest empire in Lightwind Continent.
In terms of elite armies, Feng Empire has more than ten million fully trained elite armies, while Hong Empire only has a total of one hundred thousand armies.
Feng Empire could easily crush Hong Empire any time they wanted it.
The reason why Feng Empire did not do so was that both Feng Empire and Hong Empire were under the same faction, the Immortal Sword Sect's faction.
It could be said that Feng Empire could reach the current height was due to the full support of the Immortal Sword Sect.
As the strongest virtuous sect, Immortal Sword Sect surely must maintain its image.
Immortal Sword Sect has the most disciples and elders compared to the other sects, so they certainly need more cultivation resources compared to the other sects. But they could not just invade the other kingdoms or empires then claim their cultivation resources like a group of bandits, right?!
That was the reason why Immortal Sword Sect helped the Feng Empire to raise so quickly until it reached the level of the strongest empire in Lightwind Continent!
Immortal Sword Sect used the Feng Empire as their sword to conquer the other empires or kingdoms and took their cultivation resources!
If those empires submit, then Immortal Sword Sect would let them continue to exist, and they only need to offer 70% to 80% of their cultivation resources to Immortal Sword Sect just like Hong Empire.
If those empires refused, then Immortal Sword Sect would use Feng Empire to flatten them and forcefully take all of their cultivation resources without defiling Immortal Sword Sect's reputation.
The immortal Sword Sect even acted as a mediator between Feng Empire and those empires.
Immortal Sword Sect put the righteous acts in front of those small kingdoms or empires and helped them to negotiate with Feng Empire while it was nothing more than just a pretense.
Immortal Sword Sect was playing their part as the good guys, while Feng Empire was playing their part as the bad guys.
Even Tang Li Xue clicked her tongue in amazement when she comprehended the information until this part.
In short, different from the previous Quanhai City, their current destination, Tang Feng City, was certainly filled with hidden dragons and crouching tigers (many hidden experts), so Instructor Mei Lan and the others must move really carefully this time.
As for their mission this time...
There were actually serial murders going on in Tang Feng City lately, and a few hundreds of people from important backgrounds had already died right now.
Of course, this was not the business of Fox Race if it only involved the people from the human race.
But some traces showed that the culprit was from their Fox Race!
Meanwhile, the Immortal Sword Sect already sent their best people to investigate this case about three hours before this mission was released.
Immortal Sword Sect did not only want to find the culprit but also executed the culprit on the spot.
But the mission of Instructor Mei Lan and her students was to find the culprit, and if the culprit was really from their Fox Race, then they must forcefully drag it back to Myriad Foxes Academy.
If the culprit was from the Human Race, then they could kill that person on the spot.
Tang Li Xue processed the information in her mind carefully while giving the bamboo tube to Bing Yi.
Bing Yi and Hei Yinghao took turns to tap the bamboo tube onto their forehead.
After Bing Yi and Hei Yinghao finished, Yaya and Little Loki also took the bamboo tube, then tapped it onto their head.
"Instructor Lan, I still do not really get it... This A-Grade mission tells us to save the culprit of those serial murders and bring it back with us if the culprit is from our Fox Race? Is the Information Department really sure that the culprit is from our Fox Race? Also, why do we need to go this far for the culprit of the serial murders?!" Tang Li Xue asked Instructor Mei Lan in confusion.
Instructor Mei Lan did not answer Tang Li Xue's question immediately. She took out a small transparent bottle and gave it to Tang Li Xue for her to look at.
Tang Li Xue caught the small transparent bottle and stared at the content carefully.
The content of the small transparent bottle was actually a few strands of pink-colored fox furs.
Hei Yinghao and Bing Yi also approached Tang Li Xue and looked at the content of the small transparent bottle.
The impatient Hei Yinghao impatiently asked first: "Is this the fox furs?! From that culprit of the serial murders?!"
Instructor Mei Lan slowly explained to them: "That is right! This is the fox furs from one of us. The Information Department even already confirmed the identity of the owner of these fox furs. But they still did not dare to make any careless move since they were afraid that this was actually a trap set by those humans for our Fox Race."
"Rather than our previous B-Grade mission where we need to kill people, our mission as Inspector would usually more like this. We usually deal with the delicate problems between Fox Race and Human Race." Instructor Mei Lan said to Tang Li Xue and the others.
"But it seems our mission this time is much more troublesome than I thought it to be..." Instructor Mei Lan murmured.
Tang Li Xue heard Instructor Mei Lan's last sentence, so she glanced at Instructor Mei Lan and asked with a surprised tone: "This mission is troublesome even for you, Instructor Lan?!"
Hei Yinghao and Bing Yi also stared at Instructor Mei Lan with worried expressions after they heard Instructor Mei Lan's words.
Instructor Mei Lan chuckled at their expression and explained: "Actually, the mission itself is not that troublesome, but if we take the identity of these fox furs' owner into account, the difficulty would increase by many times for us."
"Identity... of the culprit?!" Tang Li Xue, Hei Yinghao, and Bing Yi skeptically shouted at the same time.
"Yes, the owner of these fox furs is the daughter of the Education Department's council. She fell in love with a male human and eloped with him tens of years before. Her father, one of the Education Department's councils, angrily disowned her as his daughter after that. But the blood is always thicker than water, although his father said so, but he immediately released this emergency mission once they heard the news about his daughter." Instructor Mei Lan concluded her explanation.
Tang Li Xue and the others nodded their head in understanding after they heard Instructor Mei Lan's explanation.
The culprit of those serial murders might actually the daughter of an important higher-up in Myriad Foxes Academy.
In short, no matter if the culprit of those serial murders was a human or a fox, they must drag the daughter of that important higher-up back into Myriad Foxes Academy!
Instructor Mei Lan told Tang Li Xue and the others the information about the culprit: "The daughter of that Education Department's council is actually my old classmate from Inspector Class. Her name is Zuo Hongzhuang. She has illusion-type divine abilities. She can easily disguise herself as anyone. It will not be easy for us to find her."
"She is also a really meticulous fox, so it is impossible for her to carelessly leave her fur behind for us to find. In my opinion, she must be in some kind of trouble and purposefully leave her furs behind so we can find it." Instructor Mei Lan carefully deduced it.
The mouths of Tang Li Xue, Hei Yinghao, and Bing Yi were twitched violently.
This was only their second mission, and they must face the other Inspector Instructor at the level of their Instructor Mei Lan?!
You must be joking, right?!
"Oh right... I almost forgot to tell you. She is already at spirit beast rank. Although, she is only a fake spirit beast rank. So all of you must be really careful if you meet with her later." Instructor Mei Lan said to Tang Li Xue and the others with a relaxed tone.
Instructor Mei Lan's words this time made Tang Li Xue and the others lost all of their hope.
